    Just on the point about SEF chassis’ and their fit to kits, some years ago I made a Wainwright SEF D with their chassis. The distance between splashers was longer than between driving axles, and I had to cut and shut the loco footplate and also shorten the firebox to get the fit correct. I don’t know which was wrong, but it set me back at the time. Thanks for the warning on the T9 which I’ve just acquired from Ebay.
